The Rise and Fall of the Star Formation Histories of Blue Galaxies at Redshifts 0.2

Camilla Pacifici (Yonsei University Observatory)

Popular cosmological scenarios predict that galaxies form hierarchically from the merger of many progenitors, each with their own unique star formation history (SFH). We use a sophisticated approach to constrain the SFHs of 4517 blue (presumably star-forming) galaxies with spectroscopic redshifts in the range 0.2
